The exhibition « Archeonauts » attempts to bring together a group of artists who are also activists, theorists and visionaries. Out of sync with the present, like beings from a distant future confronting the artistic and technological ruins of a lost civilization, they delve into a global pre- and post- internet material and immaterial culture. Drifting through a plurality of timelines in an attempt to reclaim possible futures, these artists cast an archeological gaze born of a disarticulation of time that is typical of our age, setting forth a series of « polychronic and multitemporal » (Serres and Latour, Conversations, 1995) readings of a technological and artistic heritage spanning the East and the West.
